Javascript and code nerdity



I’m Nick Fisher. I live in Berlin and work at SoundCloud as a front-end developer. Right now, I eat, live and breathe Javascript, but I also was a PHP/MySQL guy in a previous life. When I’m being nerdy in my spare time, I hack around with some plugins for Sublime Text 2, plus some other Javascript stuff, including NodeJS. I also spend some time on Stack Overflow.

Here are some of my projects which you can find on Github:

  • Tyrtle, a Javascript unit testing framework for the browser and node
  • Myrtle, a Javascript mocking framework
  • Record, a PHP ORM class
  • Sublime Text Plugins
    • JSDocs, gives assistance while writing javadoc-style comments in Javascript and PHP
    • AsAbove, plugin to duplicate the character in the line above your cursor
    • ToggleQuotes, makes switching the quote characters on strings super easy
    • OpenRecentFiles, does what it says!
    • DefaultFileType, opens new files with the same type as the current file


Good question! Firstly, it’s pronounced “spad-joss”. Spadgos as a word doesn’t mean anything, it’s just a word a friend of mine made up, and now I tend to use it since you can be guaranteed no one has taken that username before you.

You can send me an email at spadgos at google’s mail service.
